If it has happened or it will happen to you to go around Modena and you are a person that take care of details, you will not miss to see a sign located outside the windows of some shops, bars or restaurant, which over time has hit me. I’m talking about the signs where it was written: “Bottega Storica dell’Emilia Romagna” (The Historical Shop of Emilia Romagna), but what are they?
Time flies as usual and just a few days miss at Christmas. It seems yesterday that I wrote about Christmas in the city. Now, I am back again with a special blog post dedicated to this time of the year where I’ve collected some ideas to give you in order to live Christmas in Modena in the best way.
Christmas is coming and as it happens every year we faced the great dilemma regarding the presents choice. A classic story.
Someone is more provident and begins earlier, someone like me is inspired from the things that see inside the shop windows.
The Albinelli Market is absolutely one of the visits to do if you decide to come to Modena. It is one of my favorite places in the city that I try to visit as often as possible. Usually I go there on Saturday morning, when I have more time, both for shopping and for enjoying the magic atmosphere that you can breathe inside. This market is “the place” of tradition, where the Modenese values of culture and gastronomy find their highest expression.
I deeply and unconditionally love vintage, I admit it.
Not only just vintage, but also everything old, old-fashioned, shabby chic etc. I think that this attraction comes from the intrinsic charm simply contained in these words. As if just pronouncing them, you are immediately thrown into a different time dimension, in a fantastic world in which every object is able to tell a unique story, full of emotions.
